    I'm here for the "HA" Meeting

    Hi, my name is Jayson, and I'm a hammock-aholic.....

    Early this week I completed my transaction for my WBBB, and it's on it's way...
    In my reply back to WBG to thank him and let him know payment was made, I may have ordered a Superfly (ok, I did order one)....
    Then I saw that pgibson (awesome member on the board!) has now started making hammock pillows! Brilliant! SO I ordered a custom, slightly larger w/ more loft, he turned it around in one day, comlete with stuff sack and ridgeline tether line! Paypal again (it is my friend...or is it?!), and shipped yesterday!
    Then, yesterday afternoon, ordered 100' of No-Tangle from Speer, realized just how easy paypal is making things....
    Last night, decided I needed better ridgeline, 24' of Amsteel Blue 7/64 is now on its way from Redden Marine....
    Tonight, after work, headed to REI for a handful of MSR groundhogs, a stake bag, and a couple of Figure 9's....

    Acceptance is the first step towards recovery....but, do I want to recover?!!?

    If you can wait on the MSR Groundhogs, read this from an attroll post in the Warbonnet Blackbird, Super Fly, Yeti setup videos thread:

    Sounds to me like you don't want help, denial isn't any better. Someone cancel his paypal. This is an intervention.

    wait till you start feeling bad that you haven't "upgraded" for a while...

    Recovery is for quitters.... Just insulate your bottom well and keep on hanging.

    So true. I'm still fairly new to hanging and own a few hammocks, but feel the need to upgrade already.
